Dr. Martens boots are made in England, and while some boots follow the US size chart, many adhere to the European size chart. A US size seven equates to a European size 40 and increase by half-sizes, so a US size 7.5 is a European size 40.5. In addtion to size differences, there are some other factors to know:
- Hole count: The hole count, also known as eye count, is the number of lace holes on each side of the tongue. This number determines how high the boots go up your leg.
- Breaking-in period These boots will need time to break-in. Wearing them in at short intervals and conditioning the leather with baby oil in the first months can help with breaking in your boots.
